Just This Once – Ali Comerford as the RESONATE artist-in-residence for 2023
Wexford – 3rd December
Music Network and The National Opera House announced Ali Comerford as the RESONATE artist-in-residence for 2023. Ali, a violinist, violist and songwriter, will develop a new project titled Just This Once…. inspired by stories submitted by the public.
Speaking about the project Ali said, “The people whose stories are selected will be invited to attend the concert along with the general public. This is a personalised concert, a once in a lifetime experience.”
Now in its 3rd year, RESONATE provides support for professional musicians with a strong track record in music performance to develop new work and/or collaborations. Each residency provides a grant of €6,000 to enable the selected musicians to devote time to the creation of new work, in addition to a range of in-kind supports from both Music Network and each venue partner along with opportunities to showcase the work through live performances and digital updates.
This programme brings some of Ireland’s most established professional musicians to cultural spaces across Ireland between July and December 2023. This residency is one of six opportunities as part of RESONATE 2023, Music Network’s artist residency programme in partnership with glór (Ennis), Ionad Cultúrtha (Baile Mhúirne), The National Opera House (Wexford), Triskel Arts Centre (Cork City), The Dock (Carrick-On-Shannon) and Regional Cultural Centre (Letterkenny).
